Warzek Gem Leads Glens Falls Over Dutchmen

The Glens Falls Dragon's winning ways as of late have helped them to climb back into the PGCBL East Division playoff race. Wednesday night at East Field the Dragons faced one of the teams they are trying to close in on, the rival Albany Dutchmen. The Dragons fell behind early, but once again scored four runs in the sixth to take the lead, and rode the pitching gem of Bryan Warzek (U. of New Orleans) to a 5-2 victory.


Albany got on the board first in the top of the fourth off of Warzek. The Dutchmen got back to back singles from Kyle Skeels (Coastal Carolina) and Jack Gethings (Fairfield). Both runners moved over on a successful double steal, and came in to score on a single by Bray Curreri (St. Rose) to make it 2-0 Albany.


Glens Falls took the lead in the bottom of the seventh. The Dragons loaded the bases against Albany starter Evan Giles (Indiana State). Chris Kwitzer (U. of Buffalo) started the rally with a single. After two were out, Dave Hoffman (Siena) reached on a throwing error. Kwitzer scored on the play to make it 2-1. Brian Uliana (Rider) then singled, and Josh Brown (Skidmore) reached on a walk to load the bases. Joe Pokrentowski (Saint Rose) entered to relieve Giles, and was greeted by a bases clearing triple from Hunter Szaflarski (Lock Haven) to give the Dragons the 4-2 lead.


Kwitzer extended the Glens Falls lead to 5-2 in the bottom of the seventh by blasting a solo shot over the center field for his second dinger of the year.


Szaflarski was 4 for 5 for the Dragons with the RBI's. Kwitzer and Drew Greenwood (Bellarmine) had two hits each.


Gethings and J.J. Shimko (U. of South Carolina Upstate) had a pair of hits each for the Dutchmen.


Warzek (1-2) earned the win for Glens Falls, going seven innings, scattering eight hits. He struck out 12, while walking just three. Warzek now has a league-leading 39 strike outs on the season.

John Bednarek (St. Thomas Aquinas) pitched scoreless eighth and ninth innings to earn the save.


Giles (2-1) took the loss.


With the loss Albany drops to 15-15.


Glens Falls (11-17) has now won four straight and six of their last seven. The Dragons travel to Saugerties Thursday night for a big game against the Stallions, then return to East Field on Friday to host the Oneonta Outlaws.
